Among all products of the artist the widest popularity the picture
Morning in a Pine Forest.
The plan of a picture has prompted Savicki, but the opportunity is not excluded, that as a push to occurrence of this cloth the landscape of 1888 а "Fog in a pine wood", written, on all probability, as well as
Wind-Fallen Trees, after trip to the Vologda woods has served.
Probably, the "Fog in a pine wood", with success exposed on a mobile exhibition in Moscow (nowadays in private assembly in Czechoslovakia) has caused at Shishkin and Savicki mutual desire to write a landscape, similar on motive, with inclusion in him(it) of an original genre stage with playing bears. You see motive of the glorified picture of 1889 just also is the fog in a pine wood. By the description of the landscape, which has appeared in Czechoslovakia, the background reminds it with a site of a rich wood a distant kind of the sketch, executed by oil, of a picture Morning in a Pine Forest, belonging State Tretyakov Gallery. And it once again confirms an opportunity of interrelation of both pictures. Probably, under the sketch by Shishkin (that is how they were conceived by the artist), Savicki and has written bears in the picture. These bears with some distinctions in poses and in quantity (at first them there were two) appear in all preparatory sketches and sketches by Shishkin. And them was much. Seven pencil sketches - variants are stored in one only State Russian museum. The bears have turned out at Savicki so successfully, that he even has undersigned together with Shishkin in a picture. However bought her Tretyakov has removed the signature, having decided to ratify behind this picture only authorship of Shishkin. You see in her "beginning from a plan and finishing execution, all speaks about a manner of painting, about a creative method peculiar by Shishkin".
About Shishkin spoke: "he realist convinced, realist up to a brain of bones deeply feeling and hotly liking a nature...". But thus the artist designs a landscape, offering certain "natural performance".
The entertaining genre motive entered into a picture, in many respects promoted its popularity, but true value of product was the fine expressed condition of a nature. It is not simple a indistinct pine wood, namely morning in a wood from it yet by not dissipated fog, with easily pink tops vast pines, cold shadows in thickets. The depth of a hole, thicket is felt. The presence of family of the bears who have settled down at edge it hole, derivates at the spectator sensation of remoteness of a wild wood.
"Russia - country of landscapes", - asserted Shishkin. He creates many art landscapes-symbols of Russia, and picture Morning in a Pine Forest
is for many generations of the people on all planet one of such symbols.
